    Never in the post independence history of Sri Lanka we ever had a brave Attorney General like Mr Dappula De Livera. All previous AGs were very weak men , rubber stamping what the Police were saying and simply marking time in their AG position to get into Supreme Court as Judges.

    Was Buddhika Prasad Gamage alias army “Suranga” another “ War Hero” is that why AG is trying to fix the Police. What about all the other Police killings which has been swept under the Carpet.Is the Attorney General in his proper senses.
